Planet, provider of satellite imagery and geospatial solutions, is committed to delivering the necessary tools and software needed for their users to easily gather valuable insights from satellite data.
To further this effort, Planet engaged London-based Esri gold partner Exprodat to develop an enhanced version of its ArcGIS Pro add-in – an upgrade that improves accessibility to Planet imagery for users of Esri’s GIS software platform.
Now, from a single interface, users can better design their area of interest, have access to a wider library of image filters, interrogate the metadata of images returned from searches, and save those search results within their familiar ArcGIS Pro workflows.
Chief Operating Officer of Exprodat, Chris Jepps, explains more about his company’s role as a trusted development partner to one of the remote sensing industry’s highest profile organisations: “Exprodat’s expertise in ArcGIS Pro customisation and development, coupled with Planet’s understanding of its users and their workflows, allowed us to significantly enhance the Planet add-in for ArcGIS Pro. This simplified access to Planet’s high frequency, high resolution satellite imagery provides vital insights to everyone tasked with performing geospatial analysis. The functionality in the new version not only extends the capabilities for users but also reduces the time it takes for people to understand how to take advantage of Planet’s imagery products.”
Version 2.0 of the Planet ArcGIS Pro Add-In is available for free on the Esri ArcGIS Marketplace: https://www.esri.com/en-us/arcgis-marketplace/listing/products/d4ad47a5b1024ca7b376076955014cff
